MPAA Wins Case Against TorrentSpy Over Destruction of Evidence

TorrentSpy lost big time to the MPAA in a federal copyright suit.  The case was notable because the judge at one point in the litigation ordered TorrentSpy to enable logging of IP addresses of site users, even those in temporary RAM.  The sad part about this is the way the case ended.  TorrentSpy was found to have destroyed evidence and lied about its existence.  The judge declared that termination in favor of the plaintiffs was the proper remedy for spoliation of the evidence.  What TorrentSpy did was plain wrong.  The sordid details are in Ars Technica.
